I’m really proud to have an entire blog and video series on traditional archery so you can quickly learn the things that took me years to master. Learning how to make all your own traditional archery equipment and learning to shoot it accurately though will still take some work. I wish there was a place like this online when I first started but hey, hardship builds character right…
When most people think of traditional archery, they think of a beautifully arced longbow or recurve and some will even think of bow making. You’ll find that here but that’s just the beginning. Below are links to posts and videos that will show you, step by step, how to make a longbow, create beautifull and functional arrows, strings, and all sorts of other traditional archery related projects.
A lot of what you’ll find here shows you how to make stuff – bows, arrows, etc. But, even if you shoot a modern longbow or recurve, you’ll find some useful info here as well. Like tips on shooting traditional bows accurately and how-to projects that are applicable to any traditional bow.
This is the premiere video series on how to make a longbow. Here, I show you exactly how to take an Osage orange blank and make your own selfbow from start to finish. My complete list of traditional archery videos is below. Simply click on the link and the video will play on this page.
